glibconfig.h no such file or directory


Use pkg-config.

gcc `pkg-config --cflags glib-2.0` foo.c `pkg-config --libs glib-2.0`

    I just installed glib in Raspbian(Debian version). I want to read a config file using glib. I am trying to write a C application in Codeblocks and I use the header

    #include <glib.h> 

    But I have an error in gtypes.h

    fatal error:glibconfig.h No such file or directory

    I used this path

    project->Build Options->Compiler Settings->Other Options 

    and I added

    -I/usr/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/lib/glib-2.0/include

    as I read in this tutorial. I have to declare also

    -L/usr/lib -lm -lglib-2.0 

    as the tutorial says and if yes then where and how can I declare it in Codeblocks?

      seems everything ok unless your path are wrong...

      maybe the problem is that I did not declare yet the -L/usr/lib -lm -lglib-2.0 because I don´t know how and where to declare it in Codeblocks

    You can factorize invocation: gcc foo.c `pkg-config --cflags --libs glib-2.0`

    It won't work on Windows. Windows require order of libraries.
